Belio Antonio releases new salsa single “No temas mi cariñito” that features jazz elements

BAM Música, Inc. announces the release of Belio Antonio’s newest salsa single for the summer 2009 season—No temas mi cariñito – highlighting yet a fresh new sound for this novel salsero.

This salsa single offers a new sound infused with a jazzy flare and dynamic cuts throughout while preserving that melodious interpretation by Belio Antonio his fans enjoy in each one of his songs.

I’m very excited about this new salsa single. It’s an inspiration that called for a new sound and presented me with new challenges. When I was writing this song I knew the music composition should reflect a heavy jazz element. My biggest challenge was, as a singer, to make sure I was singing salsa and not jazz. The main idea here is to create a different sound from my previous salsas that is fun to dance to yet intricate enough. I think we achieved that.” says Belio Antonio.

Listen to “No temas mi cariñito” on the Lyrics and Vignettes page of this Web site, Belio Antonio’s MySpace profile, and facebook page. You may also purchase this single in mp3 format on Amazon, iTunes, Napster, and Rhapsody as well as other online stores.

Belio Antonio's new single "No se Compra" highlights the need for hope in these tough times

BAM Música, Inc. announces the release of Belio Antonio’s new single track “No se Compra.” In this new single Belio Antonio resorts to a tropical salsa rhythm and the plight of a plantain street vendor to reflect on the importance of living a hopeful life during life’s difficult days.

“This is a tune to dance, sing or just listen to in your car especially on those days when it seems like life is so impossible. No se Compra brings tears of joy and courage,” says a Belio Antonio music lover.

“We often say that hope is the last thing we loose in the midst of adversity. Why is that? It’s because we know that hope is the factor that helps us overcome great challenges, motivates us to await a better day and the solution to our problems. There is no doubt that hope is a virtue as there is no amount of wealth that can buy it. It’s priceless. No se Compra. I hope that during these difficult days facing the world of economic and emotional crisis, that this song will encourage you to move forward with a smile,” says Belio Antonio.

Listen to “No se Compra” on the Lyrics and Vignettes page of this Web site, Belio Antonio’s MySpace profile, and facebook page. You may also purchase this single in mp3 format on Amazon, iTunes, Napster, and Rhapsody.
